This tree will grow up to 70 feet tall and has a large chunky bark making it easily distinguishable. It produces small nuts called acorns that are loved by many wildlife critters. The tree produces faded yellow colored flowers in May. The leaves can reach up to 9 inches long. The Chestnut Oak tree is very popular among many because it not only adds value to your home or landscape but also adds flair and style.
Chestnut Oak achieves its greatest growth on moist, well-drained soils of acidic pH. However, it is usually found growing in poor, rocky, sterile, dry soils of acidic pH where it can compete with the tough site conditions and win. It also adapts to soils of neutral or alkaline pH. It thrives in full sun to partial sun (but is shade tolerant in youth).
